To celebrate Open Government Week 2019, we’re holding a Twitter conversation about all things Open Government with our two Open Government Forum co-Chairs – Ms Stephanie Foster, Deputy Secretary, the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet and Ms Fiona McLeod SC, Chair, Accountability Roundtable.

Join the conversation on Twitter from 3:45 to 4:30pm on Wednesday 13 March to ask Stephanie and Fiona how the Australian Government and Civil Society are partnering together to make Australia more transparent, accountable and publicly engaged.

  1. Regret I can’t make this but thre questions:
    1. Commitment 3.1 in Plan #1: there has been no contact with interested individuals or organisations since August 2016, and the public reporting ( hard to find on PMC website) refers to recommendations put to AG in December 2016 and March 2017. Nothing has been heard since. Is there still a commitment to ensure Australia’s information access laws, policies and practices are fit for the 21st century? When in the 21st century are we likely to hear what the government intends ?

    2. The Plan 2016-18 refers to the intention to link commitments with Australia’s implementation plan for the SDGs. Nothing has been heard since. When will Australia publish an implementation plan?

    3. In light of the comments received on the draft are the co-chairs satisfied that the final published version of the End of Term Self assessment report accurately reports on the OGP journey over those two years? Were any other lessons learned apart from the one general lesson referred to in the report-the need to consult widely and early?
